The author of Open House, the winner of the 2001 Kenyon Review Prize, offers a new collection of poetry in which she explores the diverse faces, complexities, and contradictions of parenting.

Norton Pub
"A necessary poet with the courage to 'Tell all the truth' and the 'wit to tell it slant.'"Alice Fulton Beth Ann Fennelly is fearless in delineating the joys, absorptions, andyesjealousies of new motherhood. Having studied motherhood "as if for an exam," reality proved "wilder and deeper and funnier" than anything she'd anticipated. Tender Hooks is Fennelly's spirited exploration of parenting, with all its contradictions and complexities.

I was flipping through, and one of the lines of one of the poems was "I, her [my] first [daughter's] lover".

"I, her first lover".

Strange.
